To get from one side of the jungle to the other, the tour we were on decided to take us on a short 4-wheel adventure. To do this, we used an all-terrain Mercedes Benz Unimog. This was basically a truck type vehicle that allowed 8 people on one side and 8 on the other, separated by a long handlebar. The terrain ahead of us didn’t look too bad or hilly, so I was ready for a leisurely type ride. Boy, was I wrong! There must have been some massive tree roots in the road or something because we were going ALL over the place. I think half the time I wasn’t even in my seat. We were being thrown into everybody and everything. I couldn’t stop laughing. The ride only lasted about 10 minutes, but when you can’t even sit there without falling that was plenty. I had so much fun on the Unimog. It’s hard to explain just how bumpy of a ride that truly was.

* Thank you Troy for accompanying me on this adventure, being the biggest supporter in what I do and always being there to take the pictures for me.

WOULD I DO IT AGAIN?: This was part of a tour in Playa Del Carmen. This entire tour was WELL worth every penny!
